Skopje will do what it can to resolve name issue, FM Dimitrov tells ANA-MPA

Skopje will do what it can to resolve name issue, FM Dimitrov tells ANA-MPA

Athens, 6 October 2017 (MIA) - Skopje will do what it can to resolve the issue of the country's name with Greece, Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov told Greek news agency ANA-MPA after the conclusion of the two-day Second Ministerial Meeting of Greece, Albania, Bulgaria and Macedonia in Thessaloniki on Thursday.

Responding to a question on whether he can see a near-future resolution of the issue, Dimitrov said, "Today I want to stay on 'the larger picture'. In order to resolve the issue of the name - and we will naturally do the best we can to resolve it - it's important to create a positive framework and climb out of the grooves of history, since we cannot change our history, but we can influence our future, and this future will be both common and European. It is important to invest in this direction. If there is a national interest common to all countries, including ours, it is how to do the best for our citizens' future. We are on the right path." ik/11:55
